About

Up to 250 guests

In the shadow of the famous Kentile Floors sign and nestled squarely between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens, The Bell House is a brand new 8,000 square foot facility with separate performance space and lounge. Crafted out of a 1920’s printing factory and featuring an 88 foot long, 25 foot high magnificent wooden barrel vault ceiling, The Bell House has quickly become a major hub for arts and performance in Brownstone Brooklyn.

The Bell House believes that the neighborhood you live in, work in and play in reflects your life and personality. We believe that our unique space provides a one-of-a-kind backdrop to weddings that strive to be different. And we treat these events with the care and attention they deserve. Our affordable rates give couples flexibility and an opportunity to turn this special occasion into a truly unique, personal experience.

Front Lounge

Located directly in the front of the building, the Front Lounge of The Bell House retains a warm and intimate character while still comfortably accommodating up to 150 people. This space features a gorgeous 26’ oak bar serving handcrafted and local beers and a full wine and liquor selection. Groups large and small can lounge on vintage furniture and mingle in soft lighting showcased through large windows allowing sunlight in the day and starry views at night.

Main Event Hall


The Main Room at The Bell House boasts 25 foot wooden arched ceilings, a 450 square foot stage, and unobstructed views of the stage from any part of the room, making it an ideal space for weddings and celebrations of all kinds. This space easily accommodates 400 standing, 200-250 seated theater style, or 100- 140 seated at round banquet tables. Guests can also enjoy birds-eye views from the raised platform of the beautiful 30’ wooden bar along the West wall. This space can be combined with use of the Front Lounge to accommodate up to 550 guests for standing events.

    Unique, incredible space

    My husband is in a band and they were going to be playing our wedding, so his #1 venue requirement was that the live music sound as good as possible. I was a little skeptical, as I didn't want to sacrifice my dark-wood/exposed-beams aesthetic, but when we walked into The Bell House both of us gasped. We'd been there before for comedy shows, a podcast recording, an a live band over the years, but never realized they did weddings as well. They wound up being absolutely perfect for both of us!

    The bars are long, with dark polished wood and friendly staff (and top shelf open bar included in the package). They hung fairy lights on the exposed rafters for a small extra fee. We got married on the stage, and then later that night my husband's band played and sounded amazing, teaming up with The Bell House's staff on the sound board to produce really professional quality mixing... which was especially impressive given that we had several family members request the music be "not too loud". The lounge area provided space for people to have quieter conversations and cluster in groups that weren't just their tables, and the main space was big enough to accommodate 100 guests comfortably with a sizable part of the floor left open for dancing.

    Though a music/comedy venue might seem at first blush like an odd choice, it was unique and elegant and just perfect. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and I was impressed with how responsive they were. I never felt like an afterthought, and was so happy to have worked with them. I could not recommend them enough!

    The Perfect Venue

    Naomi and her team at The Bell House were phenomenal! From the very beginning, when we first visited, she answered all our questions and was extremely supportive and kind. We were really excited to find an affordable venue in Brooklyn (check out their pricing on their website) that included a full bar! She also gave us great recommendations of vendors that were familiar with the layout. On the day of our wedding, everyone at The Bell House was incredibly kind and everything went very smoothly. We highly recommend this venue! (Photo Credit: Wandermore Photography)

    After our initial venue cancelled on us we contacted the Bell House with fingers crossed they would be available in 5 months. Naomi was fantastic and everything worked out better than we could have ever imagined. She was incredibly easy to work with, responsive, and the place looked great! We should have gone with the Bell House from the beginning, we’ve always loved going to events there. Highly recommend!
